While the minimal and universal CDs *may( have a gutted gcc with minimal functionality, there is no /var/db/pkg, so you can't really use portage with it. You have 2 options for recovering from this: 1) find someone who has a recent gcc built with the same USE that you had and similar CFLAGS, or 2) reinstall. -- Andrew Gaffney Gentoo Linux Developer Installer Project -- gentoo-sparc@g.o mailing list
